Groupon’s Guide to The Scottish Borders
Covering miles upon miles of rolling hills, moorland, valleys and forests, the Scottish Borders is a suitable place for travellers to enjoy holidays packed with both action and relaxation moments. Cycling enthusiasts can make the most of quiet country lanes or clifftop paths, while further activities including horse riding, fishing and golfing are also available in area.
This region is home to a variety of historic homes and buildings, including the four Borders Abbeys and many castles such as the 18th century Floors Castle and the 16th-century Thirlestane Castle. Colourful villages allure with plenty of events and festivals, cafes and bars offering a hearty selection of local produce, and quaint shops filled with a wide range of handmade textiles and handicrafts.
